Global MicroRNA Market Report


DUBLIN, Apr. 15, 2014
/PRNewswire/ --Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global MicroRNA Market Report" report to their offering.


The analysts forecast the Global MicroRNA market to grow at a CAGR of 17.51 percent over the period 2012-2016. One of the key factors contributing to this market growth is the increase in microRNA research funding. The Global MicroRNA market has also been witnessing the discovery and development of microRNAs as biomarkers for diseases. However, the high R&D costs could pose a challenge to the growth of this market.

The report, Global MicroRNA Market Report, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers North America, Europe, and the ROW; it also covers the Global MicroRNA market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

A biomarker is a substance or a molecular or cellular process or event that indicates a biological condition. Several research studies have confirmed that microRNAs have immense potential as biomarkers for a range of diseases, from cancer to cardiovascular diseases. An increasing number of vendors in the market are focusing on the discovery of microRNA biomarkers for diseases that do not as yet have defined microRNA biomarkers.

For instance, Biogen Idec Inc., a US-based biotechnology company focusing on the development of drugs for the Healthcare sector, and Regulus Therapeutics Inc., a US-based microRNA therapeutics company, have collaborated in their efforts to discover and develop microRNA biomarkers for multiple sclerosis. Thus, the Global MicroRNA market is witnessing the increasing use of microRNAs as biomarkers.

According to the report, one of the most important drivers is the increasing prevalence of diseases such as cancer, which has led to an increase in demand for microRNA-based diagnostic tests.
